Sponsorship & Advertising

NAF El Centro is located in the heart of Southern California's Imperial Valley. It is a two-hour drive from San Diego and Palm Springs, one hour from Yuma, AZ, and fifteen minutes from the Mexican border. The base is a year-round destination for flight squadrons from the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, allied forces and other transient military personnel.

Every month, seven to 12 squadrons and up to 1,600 personnel train here. Annually, MWR Facilities are visited more than 271,339 times by eligible patrons, including active duty military, civilian personnel and military retirees. NAF is also the "winter home" of the world-famous Blue Angels who kick off the start of their air show season at NAF El Centro. The air show is the largest single-day event in the Imperial Valley and attracts an estimated 65,000 spectators. With your message displayed on banners, posters, marquees, theater slides, and more, you are supporting our military while receiving hundreds of thousands of exposures!
